Climate Change 02

Forty-two Haddenham residents met in the Walter Rose Room earlier this month to discuss how villagers could support the parish council following its declaration of a climate emergency.

Several parish councillors attended as Haddenham in Transition reviewed the ten or so climate action projects it has run and supported over the past ten years, including thermal imaging, Vale Harvest, the community orchard, Homemade in Haddenham, advising on the zero carbon vision within the Neighbourhood Plan, and involvement in St Mary's Eco Church initiative.

A short workshop identified the parish council's need for a carbon audit as well as promising areas for achievable and effective means of reducing carbon consumption stemming from energy, transport, tree planting, local produce, community, and business.

Further meetings will translate discussion into action over the summer and we will keep residents up-to-date on this website and the Haddenham dotNet Facebook page.

Anyone interested should contact Haddenham in Transition through its FB page: www.facebook.com/haddenhamintransition/
